I'm very much looking forward to Billy Talent's new record as well. Sounds like they're going to change things up.
I have no idea if you're a fan, but since you're Canadian I have to ask - did you check out Sam Roberts' new record this year? Thoughts?
Yeah, I think it's time Billy Talent tried something new and I'm excited to see how that turns out for them.
And no, I haven't. Is it good? I haven't really listened to Sam Roberts since my MuchMusic days, when all of his singles from Brother Down
and We Were Born In a Flame
were in constant rotation.
I know and that's why I'm surprised more people on this site haven't caught onto them. They remind me a lot of the bands that this site grew up on too, The Starting Line in particular. And they did an awesome cover of Taking Back Sunday's "You Know How I Do" when I saw them play in September.
